Commvault has appointed Kelly Chan as Area Vice President for Metallic Sales for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ).
Metallic, a Commvault venture, provides a SaaS portfolio of enterprise-grade data protection solutions to help companies protect their data.
Kelly will be responsible for leading the growth trajectory of our Metallic business with dedicated focus to expand our Metallic footprint across APJ as customer requirements region wide shift to SaaS based priorities.
She will also be integral to the overall success of Metallic’s new partnership with SoftwareONE, which significantly expanded the opportunity for Commvault and Microsoft to reach more customers in APJ. Prior to joining Commvault, Kelly held senior regional sales leadership roles with leading IT and SaaS organisations.
Enterprises across APJ are moving fast to adopt public cloud services to ensure business continuity and resilience given the quick deployment and agility of cloud services. IDC estimated that public cloud services will reach USD124 billion by 2025, and SaaS will hold the second largest cloud services spending by 2021 in the region.
This appointment is part of Commvault’s continuous investment to strengthen the leadership and to shape Metallic sales growth and go-to-market strategy in APJ.
A veteran from the IT industry, Kelly brings with her over 2 decades of sales experience, including deep domain knowledge on industry-leading hyperscalers, cloud and SaaS services with career stints at Oracle, SAP Concur, CA Technologies, and Sun Microsystems.
Most recently, she was at DXC Technology where she successfully drove and achieved milestone sales revenue with partners.
“I am excited to join Commvault, especially in this exciting era where the company is paving the way to excellence with its award-winning intelligent data services. Customers are increasingly moving to SaaS data management and Metallic gives customers the best choice for their data journey whether on-premises, SaaS, or on the cloud. I look forward to working with our team and partners across APJ,” said Chan.
